Three Things: Farewell, Old Friend – USCHO.com Blogs :: Atlantic Hockey Blog

Three things from last weekend in Atlantic Hockey: Farewell, old friend On Saturday, Bentley University played it’s last game in the John A Ryan Skating Arena, affectionately known (well, maybe not “affectionately” by visiting teams) as the JAR. It’s been the Falcons’ home for over 40 years, but Bentley is opening a new, on-campus rink

Bentley remains undefeated at RIT’s new rink with 5-2 win – USCHO.com College Hockey Game Recaps

ROCHESTER, N.Y. — Bentley University will open its new on-campus rink in two weeks, but Falcons sophomore Jonathan Desbiens would be fine with playing more games at Rochester Institute of Technology’s Gene Polisseni Center. In four career games at the Polisseni Center, Desbiens has seven goals, including one tonight to help the Falcons to a

You can’t make this stuff up

We’ve enjoyed the story line of the #rileybowl for four seasons now. On 13 occasions so far, Jack Riley, a redshirt senior forward for Mercyhurst, has faced off against Army West Point, coached by his dad, Brian Riley. Sophomore Brendan Riley also players for the Lakers. This past weekend’s

Three things from the weekend that was in Atlantic Hockey: Good goalies As is often the case, goaltending was the story in most of five series played this weekend. • Air Force’s Billy Christopolous allowed just one goal on 56 shots to lead The Falcons to a sweep of Rochester Institute of Technology. On Friday,

Christopolous’ strong net play leads Air Force over RIT, 2-1 – USCHO.com College Hockey Game Recaps

ROCHESTER, N.Y. — Air Force came into this weekend’s series at Rochester Institute of Technology already banged up, with several players out of the lineup, including senior all-star defenseman Phil Boje. The bad news is that two more seniors left tonight’s game with injuries. The good news is that the Falcons were able to overcome

Three Things: For Real

For real Since the first week of the season, Niagara has continued to be one of the biggest surprises in college hockey. After being picked to finish last by coaches and media after winning just five games last season (and six the season before last), Niagara has consistently exceeded expectations. After a weekend sweep of defending Atlantic Hockey champions Air Force in Colorado Springs, the Purple Eagles improved to 8-2-1 in league play and 9-5-1…

After huge win at Wisconsin, Mercyhurst showing it can compete with ranked squads

The Mercyhurst Lakers have, in the words of coach Rick Gotkin, “flown under the radar” so far this season. They haven’t garnered much attention despite doing more than their fare share to help Atlantic Hockey to an improved record against non-league opponents. So far, Gotkin’s team has knocked off Penn State (ranked No. 17 at the time), Ferris State and last Friday registered a win against (then) ninth-ranked Wisconsin. The Lakers lost to those teams…

Three Things: Meeting expectations

Three (actually four) things from the weekend that was in Atlantic Hockey: Meeting expectations Last week, Rochester Institute of Technology coach Wayne Wilson told me what to expect from his team’s upcoming series with Air Force: “We’re not expecting to start the third period down by any more than a goal or up by any more than a goal,” he said. That turned out to be exactly what happened. On Friday, the Falcons had a…

After slow start, RIT starting to pick up the pace, looking to climb AHC standings

Back on Oct. 20-21, the Rochester Institute of Technology played its first real home games of the season, hosting Union and Rensselaer at the Polisseni Center. The Tigers had tied Northeastern 3-3 the weekend before at downtown Rochester’s Blue Cross Arena, but these were the first contests of the season at RIT’s on-campus rink, now in its fourth year of operation. But the familiar confines were less than friendly to the Tigers, who lost 6-1…

Three Things: Four to one

Four to one Six series were played in Atlantic Hockey this past weekend; five of them were league affairs. Just one team achieved maximum output: The Army Black Knights, on the road no less, and against their archival, Air Force. After being the only team in league play to be on the wrong end of a sweep last week, the Black Knights took care of business with 3-2 and 2-0 wins in Colorado Springs. AWP…

With fast start, new coach, Niagara taking strides and creating buzz on campus

They say that progress takes time, that you don’t see radical change overnight. But it’s hard to look at what Niagara (4-2-0) has accomplished over its first six games and not see a significant difference over the past few seasons. It’s early. There’s a lot of hockey to play, at least 30 more games. But this stat stands out: the Purple Eagles claimed their fourth victory of the season last Saturday, a convincing 6-2 road…
